I recently reviewed a question and answer board that seemed to be a perfect solution:
I found that Jeff was excellent at explaining step by step procedures. I get into the very last step (the step where I can see all the GPO objects) and I see at the top tabs: Linked Group Policy Objects, Group Policy Inheritance, Delegation.
I have the "linked group policy objects" tab selected and under that tab I can see (from right to left):
Link Order, GPO, Enforced, Link Enabled, GPO Status, WMI Filter, Modified, Domain"
Now, I have located both the presp2 and postsp2 GPOs.
Here is where it gets tricky, and I will proceed to detail each option that is selected:
for both postSP2 and preSP2 GPO's I have:
Link order: 2,3
GPO: Small business Server Windows Firewall, Small business Server Internet Connection Firewall
Link ENabled: NO
GPO Status: Enabled***?!?!?!?!!?
Modified: 11/6/2006, 4/22/2006
This is driving me crazy because if I attempt to right click the GPO that is link order 2 or 3, The options I get are:
I do not get the simple option to pick "all setting disabled"
I do not get the option either if I attempt to right click at the top GPO status (matter of fact I cannot right click that)
I am in dire need of a fix, please someone help me out here.
If I selected "enable" or "link enabled" I can change those properties (they change from NO to YES) but I still get "ENABLED" under GPO STATUS no matter what I select.
Again please help me, I have a final exam in 2 hours and I need to make it to class in the appropiate time.
